Friends of the Chaplaincy

The Friends of Tertiary Chaplaincy at Otago are a group who support the various Chaplains at the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic through their interest in their work, prayer, attendance at various events, and through financial support.


  • receive an occasional newsletter via email (quarterly or so) which tells them of significant forthcoming events (including graduation services), gives cameo-stories of the work of chaplaincy, and gives details about support (you can signup to recieve our newsletters here).
  • attend services held by the Chaplains, and other events associated with Chaplaincy;
  • are committed to pray for the work of the chaplains;
  • are encouraged to give on a regular basis to support the work of Chaplaincy through automatic payment (eg $10 per month).
